From this mornings Dominion comes this story of a kiddie fiddler convicted and sentenced to home detention.
The trouble is the man is elderly and lives in an Anglican retirement village.
And the details of his contract with the retirement village preclude his eviction.
So they are stuck with him.
Of course a custodial sentence would have solved everybody's problems, now as it is I suppose people taking their children to visit grandparents in this particular retirement village will at a minimum feel a sense of ill ease as probably will those upon who they are calling. It wouldn't be at all surprising if residents of this village now see less of their small relatives than they used too.
They should build a special retirement village for those who offend against societies norms.
On second thoughts they have, its called prison.
